Nicolas Roeg’s 1973 horror film Don’t Look Now still retains the power to shock 44 years after its release and over that time has established itself as a seminal work in that genre. Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland are a married couple mourning the death of their young daughter, clinging on to her memory through a meeting with a mysterious psychic in Venice.
Native Venetian composer Pino Donaggio was discovered by a producer on the film and his music appealed to director Roeg. It became his debut film score, launching a long career and a close working relationship with Brian De Palma.
Italian singer, TV presenter and future politician Iva Zanicchi’s vocal version of Donaggio’s poignant Laura’s Theme captures perfectly the mood of this landmark film.
